Seattle Central's main campus is located in a dynamic and vibrant urban environment with limited parking. There are only 600 parking spaces for all students and employees. Luckily, the campus is well served by Metro buses because of its proximity to downtown Seattle and many students use public transportation.

A Seattle Streetcar line is under construction in front of the main campus and is scheduled to be operational by 2014. When completed it will link into a major Transit Center on Broadway.

Motorcycles and bicycles do not require parking permits. For details on the availability of student parking permits, see below.
